  • Allan Williamson

    I met Tony seven years ago at Barb’s 50th high school reunion and instantly knew I had a friend, he was that kind of guy. Like anyone who knew Tony, I wish I had more time with him. If I had to define him in a single word it would be GENTLEMAN in every sense of the word. Most importantly, he was a gentle man. Our world just lost a great friend, a good man and a wonderful husband. May he rest in eternal piece. Allan

  • Pamela (Robson) Smith
